Considering it's the holiday season, eating healthily has become harder than ever. Even though I like to eat clean, I have found myself eating pie (whoops) for breakfast. Here is where the apple bread comes in. 

Apple bread is like banana bread, but better (yes, I went there). This bread makes the perfect breakfast or snack; it holds you over but doesn't feel like it's just sitting in your stomach. This apple bread is 100% whole grain, dairy-free, refined sugar-free, and can be vegan if you use a flax egg. It even has fruit too!

Essentially what I'm saying is that it's the new superfood. If you haven't already started checking your pantry for ingredients, you're either not at home or clinically insane. Now, after my very astute diagnosis, I say to you: let's get baking.

  • Step 5

    Bake the bread in the oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the bread comes out clean. Let cool before at least 20 minutes and then dig in! Store leftovers in a sealed bag or container in the fridge.
